this awesome thing is something kids like, i know it i am a kid. My father always puts it up around christmas and then takes it off when it becomes dark so late that you can't see it until 10 pm.
anyhow, this instructable will show you how my father builds it

im sorry for some of the pictures but my camera is failing on me

point your spotlight at the sky and then tilt it a bit so it shines on the tree, note that the spotlight is to be on the side of the tree you are not watching. then put the 3 pieces of wood so that they block the spot from sight (also on the not viewed side of the tree, picture)
then plug it in and enjoy

Step 3: Some ideas

this could be done with a toy tree or a bonsai tree and an led.
I would try it but i dont have a tree like that.

Good luck and thanks for reading
It's spooky looking- he should put it up at Halloween instead of Christmas! Very cool!
